Long Black Train (The Road Back)
Oh long black train
You’ve been running for so long,
Pulling me back from the edge
Back to a place where I’m strong.
We pulled out from that station
It seems like a lifetime ago,
The trip was sometimes bumpy
The destination where I want to know.
Through them low slung valley’s
Yea we just passing on through,
On beyond those darkened tunnels we are
The other side the sun is shining anew.
Oh long black train you’ve been running
From despaired past to a future waiting,
Onwards through time we go
No time left for contemplating.
Running with a full head of steam we go
Leaping from the track to tackle a dream,
A journey some would say was impossible
Though life isn’t always what it seems.
That whistle screaming new hope
An enchanting tune if I might say so,
A fire burns within a soul again
No telling how far it will go.
Oh long black train this journey is ongoing
We’ve come such a long way
Notch eight and don’t be late
That’s what we’re going to say.
